A tiny kitten, found abandoned in a garden in London, is receiving much needed comfort from a nurturing dog. On September 12, the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home posted a sweet video of the kitten (Ava), cuddling with her buddy, Barney.
Found abandoned in a London garden aged just days old little kitten Ava was rushed into Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. She is still so young that she needs hand-feeding every two hours and spends much of her day in the Battersea clinic office. This is where she met her new best friend, Barney.The three-year-old #Labrador has taken his role of kitten-sitting very seriously – snuggling with Ava, playing with her, and monitoring her every move around the office to make sure she’s safe. He's a real top dog! Ava already has a home lined up but there are plenty of dogs and cats still searching: https://www.battersea.org.uk/

Little Ava, who is so young that she requires hand-feeding every two hours, already has a home lined up when she is old enough, but the shelter reminded people interested in adoption that there are many other dogs and cats who are still waiting to find their happily-ever-after.
